SOUTHERN Downs and Granite Belt dwellers can expect the rain to ease today and for the sun to return tomorrow, if the latest predictions are on the money.

Weather Channel forecaster Felim Hanniffy said yesterday an upper level trough system responsible for rain during the past 48 hours was expected to move away from the region last night and this morning.

He said this would cause falls to ease back to isolated showers and light misting throughout today.

"It will still be pretty cloudy but this will ease as a ridge of high pressure moves across the Queensland southern interior," he said.

"A low pressure system bringing rain to coastal areas is also expected to start to move away.

"This means you should see the sun returning (tomorrow) and some bright, sunny days continuing, but still with the cool mornings."

The highest temperature recorded in Warwick yesterday was 12.7 degrees at 11am, with an ambient or "feels like" temperature - factoring in wind chill - of 9.9 degrees.

Maximums for the rest of the week are expected to peak at 19 to 20 degrees, with early frost patches.

Overnight minimums are tipped to hover around the four to six degree mark.

Both maximums and minimums for Stanthorpe should be two to three degrees cooler.
